Workplace Exposure Schedule/Logbook
This is a progressive record of learning and should reflect on the workplace exposure for the full duration of the course. It contains critical elements relating to the work that needs to be done which is referred to as modules. For record keeping purposes, each module is coded and relates to an objective guiding the learner what to do.
The logbook must be available for inspection and verification during site visits by SAGMA/AgriSETA and QCTO. The learner will maintain the Logbook on a weekly basis. The learner will give the logbook to the mill mentor/training officer, which they must approve and initial:
- Assist only: means that the learner performed work under instruction of the supervisor;
- Need Supervision means: the learner performed his own work and asked for coaching/guidance when required;
- Independent work: means that the learner performed work without any assistance or coaching.
The learner may not expect to get workplace exposure in the areas where his/her applied competence may fall short as it may affect the quality of the work. It is expected that the logbook will guide the learner and mill mentor through the stages starting at Assist Only and eventually Independent Work. Keep in mind that each code of work should not be seen in isolation; most work will cover a number of codes simultaneously and no recording will be required once the Independent Work section had been initialled.
